What’s mine is HIS – What’s HIS is HIS (Jeremiah 45)

“WHAT’S MINE IS HIS – WHAT’S HIS IS HIS” (Jer. 45)
JEREMIAH SERIES MESSAGE #13 – LAST IN SERIES
FBC Earlville 9-20-15 10:30 AM Rev. J.B. Stopford, Pastor

INTRODUCTION We’ve been through much in the past 12 weeks. From Jeremiah’s calling as a prophet, to his willingness to proclaim God’s word even when there was no outward sign that God was going to act or the people were going to believe – Jeremiah was used of God in his time, and in our time as well. And on occasion he mentions his personal servant, “Baruch” – one who was not in the forefront but in the background. But today Jeremiah draws attention to a vital failing in Baruch’s life – what I call the “Baruch Battle” – and perhaps that battle is in our lives today. Who on earth was “Baruch”? Let’s pray and find out. PRAYER

BUT WAIT – THERE’S MORE !!! (Jeremiah 32)

INTRODUCTION
Read 32:1-5 For next Sunday, our final message in this series of unique passages in Jeremiah will be from Jer. 45.
About 10 years ago, I went to Cooperstown and for the first time in years had an appointment with a cardiologist. He was fascinated in the story of my open heart surgery. He even looked online to find that not only had my surgeon since passed away, but also that the cardiac unit of the hospital in which he operated was now named in the surgeon’s memory. The date of the surgery was, amazingly, 50 years ago tomorrow: Sept. 14, 1965. Much has happened in those 50 years – much to me! And after every new scene, like the famous infomercial, it could be said, “But wait – there’s more!”. Let’s look at how that applies to our chapter today. PRAYER

You are loved with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3)

INTRODUCTION Read 31:1-9 For September 13, please read Jer. 32 and learn about Jeremiah’s purchase. On September 20, our final message in this series of unique passages in Jeremiah will be from Jer. 45.
Today’s message highlights another one of those verses that you may have hung on a wall plaque. Elizabeth Elliot, author of “Through Gates of Splendor” and longtime host of the radio program, “Gateway to Joy”, used this verse every morning as her introduction to her program. The verse makes sense, but what did it mean for Israel – and for us today? PRAYER

‘I HAVE PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE’ – GOD (Jeremiah 29:11)

“‘I HAVE PLANS FOR YOUR LIFE’ – GOD” (Jer. 29:11)

INTRODUCTION
Read 29:1-14 For September 6, could you read Jeremiah 31:3 and check out a great theme for our communion fellowship next week.
Did you notice the sermon title is in quotations. It is God speaking. Do we understand God’s plans? We understand man’s plans. Illustration: a trip to Maine. Let’s go! Bring your friends. And when you get there, you have no reservations and no money. No plans. That would be a foolish way to take a trip. Yet is it possible that many of us live as if we have no plans, no purposes, no spiritual directions? Aren’t you glad God doesn’t act like that with us? He has plans. He has purposes. He has our eternity in mind! PRAYER

INTRODUCTION Today’s Special: “An Arrest Funny”
A man was seen walking through downtown with a desk strapped to his back, a typewriter under one arm, and a wastebasket under the other.
He was stopped by a policeman, asked what he was doing, and arrested when he replied, “Impersonating an office, sir!”
